objects for vases is next
my goal was to have at least 100 vases ( i have made that many but have sold 50? is that possible???? and wanted to have that many on hand for fall markets/etsy holiday shopping). after i finish this last batch i will have 77 and it dawned on me that 100 isn't any better than 77 so i'm stopping right there. in all likelihood i will make more in another few weeks....i need to sell some before restocking again. besides, tod is ahead of me when it comes to making flowers and i'm really itching to begin work on them! it's funny, tod likes lighter materials and doesn't want to use any kind of adhesives or tools; i on the other hand dont mind using jb weld or other stuff if i have to. i tend to like working with metal and its heavy so needs to be secure while tod's flowers are lighter. i still need to haul out my grinder and chop saw and cut rebar and shape it into spears to i can attach 'flowers' to the ends. we are night and day sometimes but i like that, it keeps our work different.
i call them flowers but i dont know what they are. i dont even like flowers. someone asked me what am i using for petals and i realized i'm not trying to emulate an actual flower. i like the idea of making an 'object' to place in my vases. period. actually the further away i can get from a flower the better. we'll see. i have years of this ahead of me if i am still interested. so far it feels like a journey that has barely even began.
